Vultures are circling

The MLS listing for our home expired almost a week ago. Since then our phone has been ringing nonstop. Lately I receive upwards of ten calls a day. I’m tired of explaining to agents that we will not be relisting at this time. So, I let the phone ring.

We have a strange phone that does not have an off switch for the ringer. I will look for this in the future, I never realized it was an “option.” I thought it was standard.

This wouldn’t be nearly so obnoxious if it weren’t for the fact I have an abysmal head cold. The vibration from the ringing phone is enough to send me to garage while I wait for the caller to give up. They don’t leave messages, so why should I answer in the first place?

Boy, I was all excited for you – 10 calls a day FROM BUYERS for your home! Oh. Sorry.

This crazy weather led me to take allergy pills for my “head cold” and it worked. Hope you feel better soon.

Because we’ve seen such a downturn in the real estate market, of course agents are doing whatever it takes to get a listing/sale. I don’t go after expired listings, but I know several agents who do. I prefer working with people who know, like and trust me. Good luck!
